The review is related to modern investigations of biological activity of phosphorus and non-phosphorus alkyl glycerolipids. Based on the experimental articles published last decade the questions on stereospecific ether glycerolipids and their biological properties such as antineoplastic activity, ability to inhibit protein kinase C, PAF- antagonistic effect, anti-HIV action and possibility of their use in biotechnology especially in gene therapy are considered in the review.

Key words: ether glycerolipids; edelfosine; biological activity of alkyl glycerolipids.
